5.26: Floating Fen in Shirley Lake West of North Moose Lake

The photograph shows the north end of Shirley Lake 1. In the southeast are near-circular checkored mats of floating fen peat 2. Further south are small rounded floating peat mats 3. The floating rings on the extreme south 4 may be lily pads. A dike runs across the north 5, but its purpose is not obvious.[i]
